Broken Sword contest

Hi guys! Head over to Broken Sword Zone and have a chanse winning excusive Broken Sword stuff.

How are you numbering the answers there.

because I've got
1. Czech
X. France
2. Ireland

Why is france X and ireland 2?

 DrMcCoy 12-02-2004 04:13 AM

...maybe a "hidden" hint of some sorts...

 VampireNaomi 12-02-2004 05:12 AM

Or perhaps because it's a common and widely used way of numbering things? :rolleyes: At least in this part of the world.

 DrMcCoy 12-02-2004 05:32 AM

o_O?

...you're numbering things "1., X., 2."?
...then you're living in a strange part of the world...

 Ray Jones 12-02-2004 05:35 AM

it's one times two, which, of course, gives the smallest prime number, you freaks.

 VampireNaomi 12-02-2004 05:36 AM

Well, it's not exactly a numbering system, but it's used in gambling and when people bet on stuff, like soccer games. Therefore it's a very suitable way of numbering the answer options.

See this not very good picture

 DrMcCoy 12-02-2004 05:41 AM

...it's still completely illogical...

...and in soccer, it's because the "X" is a draw, so it's now comparable, imho...

 VampireNaomi 12-02-2004 05:46 AM

Well, when you look at it that way... I don't know. I'm not one to bet much on anything, so I don't know a thing about this stuff. The only things I DO know is that 1, X and 2 don't raise any confusion in me.

Perhaps I should think more.

 Ray Jones 12-02-2004 05:47 AM

uuh.

 Guybrush122 12-02-2004 06:14 AM

perhaps france was once two, and now has been disqualified, due to lighting cigarettes in the non-smoking section?

 Isak 12-02-2004 09:33 AM

sorry if there is any cofusion. its just that we use this 1,x, 2 system in sweden, didn't know you didnt do it in the rest of the world...

but there is a secret behind the "x".... no theres not :p

 Joshi 12-03-2004 01:07 AM

Most numbering systems in the wirld go 1, 2, 3,, or a) b) c). I've never seen 1 x 2 before, it just doesn't make any senseto list answers that way.

 Fealiks 12-03-2004 07:21 AM

wtf?!?! o_O that's just WRONG.

Is X a varified number or just a wierd numbering thing?

No it's a wierd numbering thing :D.
It's probably some stupid guy from scandinavia who invented it...
Anyway, I changed to 1,2,3 now instead, so go to Broken Sword Zone and paricipate in our contest!;)

 VampireNaomi 12-03-2004 11:08 PM

Wow, such a big fuss over one damn numbering way.

nothing exciting happens on these forums, we have to entertain ourselves by arguing over trivial things. Now who stole my left sock?

 Fealiks 12-04-2004 06:07 AM

Oh, Joshi, look I've ran through this before, it's on your foot.
